About Mariëtta Buitenhuis

Mariëtta Buitenhuis is a lawyer at AKD who specialises in administrative law and particularly in environmental law, enforcement, state liability and issues relating to public order. Mariëtta regularly assists local government bodies, but also has experience in working with private individuals.

Clients appreciate her feeling for political context and affinity with administrative relationships. These are skills she has developed thanks to the years she spent in politics at a municipal level. In her final year thesis she described the role of the municipal council in zoning plans and environmental plans in the field of noise and odour and the thesis was awarded a commendation by the Institute for Construction Law [Instituut voor Bouwrecht]. In 2017 Mariëtta was also a finalist in the VAR moot court. Mariëtta is a member of the Environmental and Planning Act expert group which advises the speakers of the Dutch Senate and House of Representatives on environmental law.
